    We Are ...

    - curious to see how PSU will do in their B1G opener
    - aware that Lovie Smith doesn't have elite talent, but he's a good coach
    - hopeful that PSU will clean up the penalty bug that afflicting them last week
    - cognizant that our entire college football routine is off, as we're not used to PSU playing on Friday nite
    - interested to see how many true freshmen play tonight
    - somewhat fearful of the Illini FG kicker
    - not looking ahead to next week, and hoping the team is focused on tonight's game
    - ready for a victory

    ... Penn State!

    Anyone know when was the last time that Penn State played a regular game on a Friday night? Looked for the answer and didn't come up with anything recently.

    Vs. Temple at The Vet.

    Did we play some day after T-giving games vs. Pitt since then? Maybe not... maybe just before '78.

    I guess we got a minor league broadcast crew. Before the 1st snap, one of the color analysts talked about the Syracuse secondary. I guess the orange uniforms confused him.

    Is this Penn State vs. the construction barrels? Illinois uniforms could be used on the highway.

    I like what Rahne is doing. Attack the short middle with the tight end and the linebackers cannot play the run tight. Should free up the running game.
